VaserShape is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It combines ultrasound and massage therapy to reduce fat deposits and improve skin tone. VaserShape was developed to produce visible body shaping and reduce the appearance of cellulite while improving blood circulation through weekly sessions. It uses an FDA approved device that reduces fat and cellulite. VaserShape also helps reduce pain and swelling.
How does it work?
VaserShape uses a combined ultrasound and massage therapy that treats fatty tissues underneath the skin. Unlike other procedures, VaserShape provides a relaxing treatment that feels like a hot-rock massage and lasts one hour per area. This procedure uses two ultrasound heads which are positioned next to each other and the ultrasound energy that converges like a “V” below the skin’s surface. Only half the amount of energy going through the skin is deployed when the two beams combine in the subcutaneous tissue. When the fat is disrupted, the body begins to absorb it and passes it our through natural process.
The device used in VaserShape produce a cavitational effect over the tissue that promotes fat loss. Variable pressure of the ultrasound gives out micro-bubbles that disrupt the fat cells. Unwanted fat deposits are the only ones being target by this pressure which leaves the adjacent structures including nerves, connective tissue intact, skin, and blood vessels.
VaserShape’s Zonal Lymphatic Massage helps eliminate toxins, waste from the body, and excess fluids. The process works by moving unwanted waste particles through the lymph nodes to the blood stream where the substance is filtered by the body. It also stimulates the lymphatic system that drains away excess toxins and fats.
VaserShape has two types of treatment offered which are zonal lymphatic massage and ultrasound therapy. The attending physician will recommend a specific treatment that will achieve the results a patient is looking for. The procedure is deployed using special concave hand piece. Following the contour of a patient’s body, the device targets fatty tissue with a specific depth beneath the skin.
Physicians prescribe treatments based on the patient’s body type and effect they are hoping to achieve. VaserShape’s procedure includes one combined ultrasound and massage treatment per week which last for about 20 to 30 minutes per body area. It also has one zonal massage session per week and a total treatment regimen of three to five weeks. Most patients notice significant improvement after their first session. Following each treatment, patients can resume with their normal activity without downtime.
VaserShape can be used to treat both men and women candidates that do not have a lot of loose skin and are not overweight. There are many areas that can be treated by VaserShape including legs, arms, abdomen, hips, thighs, love handles, and more.
- Tightens the skin in the treatment area
- Produces visible, lasting, and measurable results
- Smoothes the contours of the body by heating the fatty tissue layer
- Reduces the appearance of cellulite
- Allows patients to treat virtually any area of the body
- Comfortable procedure without downtime and gives fast results
VaserShape Compared to Traditional Liposuction
Unlike liposuction, VaserShape does not require anesthesia of any kind and has no downtime. However, the procedure is ideal only for patients with small areas of fat. The non-surgical sculpting procedure can reduce fat cells while remaining outside the skin using ultrasound and massage therapy treatments. Liposuction, on the other hand, reduces fat from beneath the skin with incisions included in the process. VaserShape is typically less dramatic with a very few side effects that gives result through gradual fat elimination process.
